Ashurst launches flexible working arrangements for equity partners
Ashurst has initiated a new flexible working scheme for equity partners. The scheme will allow equity partners to work part-time and be paid on a pro-rata basis without hindering their progress through the lockstep, and also provides for a pilot scheme to allow partners to work remotely.
Senior partner Charlie Geffen said: “What matters is output and it is not necessarily the case that the output of someone working flexibly is any different from someone who is not. Clearly those who choose to have a more structured part-time arrangement will be compensated on the basis of what they achieve and their availability to support colleagues and clients.”
